Writing Wednesday – 5/8/19

As most of my followers may be aware, I’m in the process of working on a horror novel. I’ve posted a little bit about it here, but today I thought that I would share the first chapter. I completed the first draft a bit ago and I was super excited that it was finally done, at least in some sense, but it wasn’t over. The process is never easy and it takes a lot of time. I don’t always get to write or even have the desire to so this WIP will take probably another few years at this rate.

However after starting my blog and posting about it I’ve felt more confident in working on it. I’ve gotten closer to a finish product than I ever have before. I’m so proud of myself for getting this far. I’ve been working on drafts, my first draft was not large enough, trying to get it up to a better word count. Ideas were flowing, I was reading more which was helping me figure out how to write better for my novel.

I finished the first draft

It’s an exciting time for me because even though I’ve started many a draft, I’ve never finished one. I think that one of the best things is knowing that you have a story completed, that you’ve connected the dots. Even if it’s rough, and short and totally needs more work. You have a beginning, middle and end for once. It’s amazing. I’m still actually a little surprised, but also kind of excited.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to post about it, I don’t want this blog to become about writing because that’s not the purpose, but I also want to share these little bits with you all because they are important to me. I think sharing them can be important and helpful when trying to connect with each other.
